The right hon. Gentleman's question is felicitously timed since my noble and learned Friend the Lord Advocate has today presented to Parliament, under section 3(2) of the Law Commissions Act 1965, the Scottish Law Commission's report on diligence and debtor protection. The report will be published tomorrow.Before deciding in what precise way reforms should take place the Government wish to be fully aware of the public reaction to the Commission's recommendations.

The consultation paper will be issued once the report is published, and copies will be placed in the Library.
